Bridge 6: rebuild for SQLlite and ACR7.1

I have, so far, rebuilt 380,000 my Bridge Cache to accommodate the new format of SQLlite using the ACR 7.0. With the release of ACR 7.1, Bridge wants to rebuild the cache to allow for ACR changes. Thus it is necessary for me to allow the reconstruction but I am unsure what is the most efficient way to do so since this will take about 10 continuous days of processing.

Should I simply allow Bridge to "build and export cache to folders" or should I simply delete the cache and reconstruct from scratch?

I do have the .BridgeCache files in all directories (from the Bridge5 construction). What does Bridge do with these since they were constructed with the 6.x version of ACR and will Bridge reconstruct these appropriately if I have "export cache to folders" enabled? Will Bridge6 replace these cache files with new versions or will it simply append new thumb/preview images to the end of these files thus increasing their size by a factor of two?

Is it better to delete these .BridgeCache files and allow a reconstruction from scratch?

Any recommendations about the right way to rebuild the cache would be appreciated.
